If one can search from a user prompt, what are the allowed wildcards e.g. starts with, ends with, contains, etc.

Hi Allen,


The user search filters will naturally include wildcards on both sides of the search phrase (note in this I am typing "ven" and have adventure returned):

Is this what you were referring to?

Not sure what you are doing verse what I am doing:

I tried a partial work search from a User Prompt e.g., “NOV*” (begins with NOV) when looking for “NOV-00434-MAS” and other related records; but got no results. Verses “*MSA” (ends with MSA). Verses “*434*” (contains MSA).

Hi Allen,


I was using the search button to look through the possible list of values. The filter itself needs to be provided an exact value.
